According to those images of the body of the new Ford Maverick, which have appeared at the disposal of the auto edition, the compact pickup will receive a rather short cargo platform. The published photos of the newest car show only its body.
A Motor1.com reader was able to capture the new American Ford Maverick pickup with a “naked” body. These photos certainly provide us with a better look at the upcoming pickup truck from the “blue oval”, which has a one-piece body structure.
The published photos show exclusively the body of the compact Maverick truck, without unnecessary exterior or interior details. In profile, the truck is very similar to the existing mid-size Ford Ranger, but significantly shorter than it is in length. The folds around each wheel arch are the same as on the full-size F-150 pickup.
The area of the loading platform looks rather small. It is not possible to put something with dimensions 121 by 243 there.
There have already been comments on the web for this photo, and some of them say that a regular-sized motorcycle can hardly fit there.
Earlier spy shots of Ford’s upcoming pickup truck tell us that the Maverick has a sliding rear window that should bring some fresh air into the cabin. The profile photos show that there is an opening for the sunroof and it is located above the front seats.
It is also known that the compact Maverick truck will be built on the same platform as the compact crossover Ford Bronco Sport and Escape (Kuga) Focus sedan / station wagon. This means that lower trim levels could be front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive should be available as an option. From what the automaker’s engineers are doing with the Bronco Sport crossover, a full-fledged off-road vehicle in compact dimensions, there is reason to believe that the company could turn the Maverick into a small pickup truck with decent off-road capabilities.
Maverick is due to hit stores in late 2021 or early 2022. The full presentation is expected to take place next year.
Not so long ago, we wrote that patent images of a “charged” Ford F-150 Raptor 2021 appeared on the Web. The front of a high-performance pickup truck Ford F-150 Raptor 2021 is shown in the drawing. The document somehow made it onto the Web. It is reported that this is a real drawing depicting a powerful truck.
